We will forever miss you “Maximus Prime” forever gonna miss that smile and that every AM comment when we worked together “here comes trouble” and I looking around going who? Where? And you chuckling going you know who. The talks in the breakroom and the words of advice. Thank you Max for everything you’ve done for so many of us and giving us a smile every day we spoke even a few words to. You are and always will be the best of the best! Rest well you wonderful woman. Take care

God bless you all. I am so sorry to hear about Maxine. We are thinking of you all. Praying for comfort and healing

Prayers and thoughts go out to Jim, Jamie, Heidi, and family. Max was a great neighbor with such a funny personality and I always remember her distinct laugh about things. She found humor in our goofy ‘Wicks Boys ways” and she was always looking for the next thing to laugh about. That’s how I remember her anyways, I hadn’t thought a lot about it until now but I remember her vividly. I remember she cared for a lot of ‘little ones’ for many years at her daycare. I would run into her less frequently over the years but it was always like a very familiar face and never like a stranger you haven’t seen for awhile. It’s becoming more obvious to me as I get older that we often wish we would ‘randomly run into’ people more often when it is too late, and Max is one of those people for me. Every encounter over the years was met in humorous fashion and a good chuckle. Wishing your family God’s peace as you grieve your loss. God bless.
